. . . for Lauren and Lauren: How I'm going to get rich

March 12, 2013

How I'm going to get rich


dress: target maternity    scarf: gap    boots: ? 

I have always been a terrible sleeper, which I'm sure hoping isn't passed on to my daughter. 
I could count on one hand the amount of times a year I sleep through the night. 

Since being pregnant my sleeping has gone even more downhill and I attribute most of it to not being able to find a comfortable position since I always slept on my stomach.  Even with the use of body pillows I can not get comfortable on my side. 

Which is why I'm convinced I need to invent a pregnancy mattress that has a hole in it, so your stomach can go in it.  It could even have different sections or wedges that can accommodate your growing belly. 

In case you can't picture what I'm talking about, I thought it would be a good use of my time to draw one.  



Now I'm pretty sure chiropractors and doctors would not support this invention, but I'm guessing that a good amount of pregnant woman would still buy it.  Which is why I think I could make some decent money if I sold them.  What do you think?  Any fellow stomach sleepers out there?

YES! I've never been pregnant but when I had foot surgery I had to sleep on my back w/ my foot up on some pillows. It was the worst b/c I'm a stomach sleeper. I've always wondered how I would sleep if I was pregnant. I think this bed would be a big seller!! :)

Love your outfit too!

I almost cut a hole in mine when i was pregnant. It was 2 am. I couldnt sleep. I was over it. Turns out I was just preparing for never sleeping again. Go figure.

Good use of time, indeed. I also rarely sleep through the night.

And I almost bought a maternity shirt with all that rouching (sp?) at Target. Just because it looked comfy and was $7.

Casey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Your paint skills are top notch! :) I've had a few girlfriends sleep in a LAy-z-boy instead of a bed when they were pregnant.

Kaylin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Agnes Mayer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

stopping by from style elixir's link up. Love your post. It would be nice if they made mattresses like that. I could have used it when I was pregnant with my son.

haha brilliant!! OMG this is so smart - my coteacher is due June 13 and she said she's hardly sleeping, too b/c of no comfy way to lay! You would make $$$$.

Just think, baby girl's college fund would be set? worth it....

amber.m said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This is genius really! Getting comfy while pregnant is SO hard to do! I totally get it!

Amy Disbrow said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You should definitely invent that!! Haha! You'd make the big bucks! :) I love your outfit! That dress is gorgeous!

Autumn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, you're hilarious! The whole left side thing didn't work for me, I'm a right side sleeper. Go get a massage, they have beds like that. ;-)

Priscila@mommode said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'd buy that mattress for my next pregnancy. I suffered so much with being comfortable sleeping while preggo.
You know what else I'd buy? That dress! Your bum is looking adorable.

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha! I agree.. that idea could totally pay for you daughter's college! Love that dress too :)

Mostly Lisa said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think a lot of pregnant women would appreciate this invention. I'd pitch it! Haha.

Love the dress.

Always,

LEIGH said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahahahaha this is hilarious! I think it would fix your problem though ;) Luckily I'm a side/back sleeper... I didn't start sleeping on my stomach till I actually got pregnant. The pressure on my growing chest felt good lol...

Kayla Peveler said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

OH MY GOSH look how cute you are!!! Your bump is reaalllyy beginning to show now. Woo! Love that drawing, hahaha! Do it!! I am soo a stomach sleeper, too!

Hope you a wonderful day :)

Haha you are so cute! I feel bad for tummy sleepers when they are pregnant. I am a side sleeper so hopefully I can get comfortable on my side when I am pregnant!

# i love your dress! what a great color. #2 this is genius. i'm a stomach sleeper and i fear for my sleep habits when we have kids! what will i do?! i think you should patent this!

readeatcreate.com said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Lol...genius! Even for a night when you ate (drank?) too much.

CC said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yes! I would totally go for that. :) I am a stomach sleeper too and the bigger I got the worse it was. So miserable. And then I was so excited about being able to sleep on my tummy once I had the kidlet. Nope. My milk leaked all over when I slept on my tummy. Yuk. I did however eventually return to my stomach. :)
And I love that dress on you. :-

Brittany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahaha I would've loved this when I was pregnant!! Great idea! And I love that maternity dress on you...you are SO adorable preggo! Sweet little baby girl bump :)

Suzanne Bruce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

you are hilarious taking an outdoor pic in short sleeves!! and somehow manage to look comfortable... girrrrrrrrrrrrllllll!!!!!

List Addict said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

From your diagram any chiropractor worth his or her weight should be able to see that your back is perfectly straight and aligned. I can't see how they could raise any objection. You have obviously done your research and this should be a winner! Hope you find a comfy spot soon.

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahah love this! I'm a tummy sleeper too so can you please start inventing so this mattress is available when I get pregnant? :)

Elle Sees said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'm a horrible sleeper! I don't recall ever sleeping through the night,even with meds. I always thought pregnancy keeping you awake is God's way of preparing you to be up during the night when the baby comes, hehe

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, genius! I sleep on my stomach too and I definitely wouldn't be able to fall asleep on my side/back.

JP Lord said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

True story here: when I was 8 months pregnant I went to the beach. I just wanted to lay in the sand...but I couldn't because I looked like a beached whale. SO I dug a hole for my belly and it was the best idea. EVER. You look fabulous!!! And I promise, sleeping doesn't get any easier! LOL
Found you via the linkup

christina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

preach it and make it! lol. I was thrilled to sleep and lay on my stomach again after baby!!

ok note: I am about to write you a novel :)

are you considering sleep training? It isn't for everyone, but it does work. I read and used the book 12 hours sleep by 12 week old with all of my kiddos. ( this is not a cry it out method book ... it teaches baby to sooth themselves to sleep ) Anyways my oldest was sleeping 8 pm to 8 am by 12 weeks, my middle was sleeping 8pm to 7 am by 10 weeks and my youngest was sleeping 9pm to 8 am by 11 weeks.

again it isn't for everyone and I know you have waited a long time to hold this sweet girl of yours...but i just wanted to share and put it out there :)

Karen Curtis said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOL! This is too funny! I am sure that would be no good on the back but helpful for the stomach.

You look cute in that dress!

you look so great - love the outfit and congratulations on expecting a baby girl!

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You are a hot momma rocking that dress!

And ok, so how funny is this? In 5th grade we had a science fair, and my friend Kevin made a bed for a pregnant lady - complete with a hole in the mattress for her belly! I still remember it to this day, he used a Barbie and Ken to demonstrate!!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yes, yes, yes! I would buy it! I am definitely a tummy sleeper and I've wondered what I am going to do when I'm pregnant. I've said the same thing about making a bed like this. They have those masseuse tables that are specially designed for pregnant women... surely we can get a bed too! ;)

Laura @ Chaotic Domestic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Great dress - you look fantastic!!
I guess I should be glad I'm not a stomach sleeper because I can't imagine how difficult it would be to have to change sleeping positions. That said, love your idea for the mattress... Very innovative! :)

DC in STYLE said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, so funny, I told my hubby about this "pregnancy bed" idea as well:) I got 2 long pregnancy pillows and it really helps to feel more comfy!!!

Sandra said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Genius idea! And that dress! WOW! Perfect on you :)

JulieAnn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the dress!

Genius idea. I went to the beach when I was pregnant and dug a hole for my belly. It was delightful. Also, I got a pregnancy massage one time where they had two big wedges (like the sponge wedges you use to put on makeup only several times larger) and they had them like a bike jump < > with a space in the middle for the belly. it was heavenly.

Lindsay said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love this look. And target maternity was my GEM when I was pregnant with L :)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Cha ching! I am having a hard time with the whole not being able to sleep on my back thing. I seriously am messing up my neck/shoulders from sleeping on my side these days. I still have been managing on my tummy but this week I notice it is getting more and more uncomfortable so I would totally buy this bed. It also kind of made me laugh bc I use to work at a chiro/massage school and it reminded me of how they had massage tables for women who were well endowed and like your table they had cut outs for their ahem.....girls.

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I LOVE this outfit!! I sure hope Target brings great maternity clothes to Canada when they open this year (for future purchases!).

I missed sleeping on my belly so much when pregnant. I had a wedge which was someone comfortable. I've heard the Snoogle is amazing but it's pricy.
